Practically running the place...

Practically running the place... (4/6)



  1. It is most definitely a coin worthy of collecting. The most recent two examples on Heritage Auctions sold for around $500. One of Romagnoli's many beautiful designs.
  2. Here is my example of the 1934-35 Victoria/Melbourne Centenary Florin. NGC doesn't attribute the "full wreath head, nipple (specimen)" type for this coin, but this is the fully struck version of the design -- referred to by some as the "Specimen" strike. I'm providing close-up images of the horseman to show what I mean. The striations on the obverse are all raised in hand, and thus are die polish lines. I think NGC was overly harsh on the grade of MS62 on this one as they didn't understand what it truly was. But, in the end their lower grade allowed me to pick this coin up for a song (at least as far as this issue goes).
  3. I'm a big fan of Kruger-Gray as a coin designer, so I had to add one of the shillings to my collection. This one fit the bill nicely.
  4. Let's give this thread a bump Here are a few more recent copper acquisitions.
  5. One of my favorite British coins is my 4 pence I picked up about 2 years ago.
  6. Here are a few of my more colorful lustrous coins.
  7. On a side note, a very nice member over on the PCGS forums sent me a PDF version of the "CATALOG OF AMERICAN NUMISMATIC ASSOCIATION CONVENTION BADGES AND MEDALS" by Charles Hosch, which has been most helpful. It is the compendium compiling all of the Numismatist article information scattered over the various issues from the 1970s, 80s, and 90s into one resource.
  8. This one was posted on eBay for $49.88 with free shipping Buy-it-now. I had the "search" set up for nearly a year for this 1964 set -- so I scooped it up immediately at that price when I got the email notice. There are still bargains to be found on occasion.
  9. The set arrived already today! Super fast shipping...and I'm very happy with it. I really like the matte finish to the medals.
  10. Art, thanks so much for the information. I will take better photos when I receive the medals in hand.
  11. The only example I have of Dupuis' work. The reverse is by "Caque"
  12. Ciao Giorgio, and welcome to the forum! -Brandon
  13. I recently picked up this, but I'm not sure of the mintage. I also have the badge type....anyone offer help on the mintages for these Capital Plastics sets for 1964?
  14. Here's a new copper for the weekend. Happy Friday!
